Employment projections for the Hospitality sector are strong, particularly for café, restaurant and accommodation services with regard to hospitality workers, food trade workers and accommodation and restaurant managers. The sector, however, is currently experiencing several challenges which are impacting workforce skills.

  • Workforce shortages in food trade occupations
  • Skills training not reflective of current industry practices
  • Transition of workers across the cookery sector
  • Lack of business and commercial skills in graduates

To address the workforce skills issues faced by the sector, the Tourism, Travel and Hospitality IRC is directing an update of the Training Package Products supporting job roles in the cookery and catering sectors. 

This project is being overseen by the Tourism, Travel and Hospitality IRC. A sub-committee of the IRC has been formed to direct the project and provide guidance regarding updates to Training Package Products. The membership of this sub-committee is as follows:

Mr Bradley Woods - Australian Hotels Association WA - IRC Chair

 Mr John Hart - Restaurant and Catering Australia - IRC Deputy Chair

Mr Stephen Lunn - Australian Culinary Federation

Mr David Gigg - Compass Group

Mr Iain McDougall - Hospitality Group Training WA

Feedback received during the consultation period will be collated and provided to the sub-committee for discussion, in order to inform its recommendations to the IRC for the next steps in this project.

"It would be ideal to find suitable resources for all these special diets in one place, book or website. I asked our library staff if they could locate it and they found this impossible. "

"Current hours are 12 [6*2 hrs a week] for this unit. The unit feels very rushed for students to get a cycle menu completed over 5 weeks and present with so much performance criteria to be covered before hand. "
